I just installed a VoIP phone, a physical one, not a software one: it works directly from my router, no need for sw or anything else.

I bougth a DID (real geographical phone number) and can call anywhere.

What I would like to do is to call numbers directly from within my applications, Thunderbird first, without need to use the phone keyboard (errors prone when dialing many numbers).

I found only an extension from ]www(.)abbeyphone (.) com but you need an account with them and prices are very high.

Is there any way to do so without installing Asterisk ?

thanks, evelino
